Did my first few laps at this track last night... wonder how many cut track penalties will be applied  ;D I didn't finish a single lap without a cut due to the track limits on the straights.

The straight is deceptive. What looks like asphalt outside of the white lines is really footpath or something.
There's plenty of opportunity to get warnings before the race ;)

Yes I found that out after a couple of laps, but then I must have kept cutting it a little on the entry to the straight. Will try and get at least one valid lap later before race night.

Perfectly valid to drive there in the real race though. :o
I think my new sig' sums it up.

No limits = no track :)
We're racing in the AC universe, and there it is what it is.

I am expecting at least one 10 second penalty per lap

The learning process made it hard for me to get a clean lap for some reason. The track limits seem strict .  Never learnt this track before, although it did seem familiar, but not sure if that's from watching or I have driven it at some stage.
The time of day the server was on tonight seemed better for me also, anyway if in gt3 and not done many laps here be prepared for lots of 10 second penalties  :P

I was getting warning with 2 wheels outside the white lines which is still perfectly valid in the real world. Will just have to take more care in the race

The app only warns when 3 wheels are off the valid track surface. It may be that this mod has some sections where the the white lines are not quite aligned to the valid track.
Anyway, thanks for the warnings.
